Dental Bridge – Dr. Shanaz
A dental bridge is a treatment to replace a missing tooth by using the the teeth adjacent to it as support. Just like a bridge that connects two places, it requires an anchor at both ends to support the bridge itself.
Bridges can be a great treatment especially when the two adjacent teeth already have large fillings or gone through a root canal treatment. This then becomes suitable for the two teeth to be covered by the prosthesis to allow greater longevity of the teeth.
Another alternative to replace a missing tooth is an implant, but that’s a story for another blog post!
